Periodontics

This area of dentistry specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of functional and structural diseases of the periodontal membrane (gum) and related tissues that surround and support the teeth. Degeneration or inflammation of these tissues can be caused by various systemic or local diseases or by poor oral hygiene. 

Pocket Depth Reduction, one of GAOC's flagship services, is proven effective in the treatment of periodontal disease. It involves surgically reducing the height of the gum line, removing diseased or excessive tissue, and recontouring the underlying bone to prevent the progression of the disease.
